So, our Sounds game was a SUCCESS! We had 26 to attend (even though Bro. Jerry didn’t get to stay). The bus was nearly full! We appreciate all who participated. I hope that, because of the success of this event, there will be many more like it in the near future.
I was told this week that the Blackman Church of Christ in Murfreesboro will be hosting a Youth Day, held at their building. The date will be Saturday, August 16th, from 9am to 2pm. Chris Miller, I believe, is their speaker. If you are interested in going, please see myself or Marissa to let us know. Transportation may be provided, if needed.
Parents, keep in mind that Marissa and I will be away from Gilroy for the next two weeks, starting the 20th, as I will be leading singing in a Gospel Meeting and also for vacation. Gary and Sandy Sole will be teaching the Sunday morning classes and Ronald and Janet Luther will have the combined class on Wednesday, the 23rd (the 30th is Singing night). The Wednesday class will continue in the Horizons book, so we encourage you to have your child(ren) prepare themselves for the next lesson in the book. Marissa and I will, Lord willing, return the first Sunday in August.
We look forward to seeing you at Bible Study tonight!
For those going to the Sounds game tomorrow… just a little FYI…
- We will be leaving the church building at 5:30pm. The game will begin at 7:05pm, so this should give us plenty of time to get there.
- The tickets have been purchased and are in our possession. Those driving themselves to the game should already have theirs and will meet us at the game. For those riding the bus, tickets will be given when we arrive at Greer Stadium.
- Tickets do come with vouchers for a free hot dog and drink. Those will provided with your tickets.
Again, thank you all for participating. Our hope is that this will be a good time of fun and fellowship for all. Hopefully, this will be the first of many events like this one.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org or 497-3438). Questions about transportation may also be directed to our bus driver for the evening – Charles Talley.
Thank you all,
The last devotional that was hosted at the Williams house was a great success. The teens enjoyed going somewhere besides the church building and having other options of activities. If you would be interested in hosting a devotional or Youth event at your house or at a different location, please let Kyle know. Our goal is to do one activity a month. We have August and September taken care of so if you would like to volunteer for another month please take advantage of the opportunity.
Girls and parents we are nearing the end of our study in the book Girl to Girl. We are looking for a new book to start studying on Sunday mornings. If you have a book that you are interested in studying or having your child study please let us know and we will look into it. We will still continue to study the various studies every other week and if you just have a topic suggestion for these classes let us know. All input from the girls and parents is encouraged. Our goal is to study the lesson with them in class and for it also to be talked about at home. We look forward to having these study opportunities with the children of all ages.
Since we had a break in our class due to VBS we are skipping lesson four in class. Please do still take the time to read the lesson on our own. You never know it might be talked about at another time. So this week we will be looking at lesson five. Please read this lesson it will help increase class conversation as a group.
VBS was a great success!! Thank you to all that helped. Thank you for inviting your friends to join us. Now, let’s continue to water the seeds that were planted during VBS. The bus will run for the next few weeks picking kids up to join us on Sunday Morning and Wednesday Night for bible class. Let us know if you know anybody that would be interested in riding the bus for these times.
For your enjoyment, here’s a clip from our singing during this year’s VBS…
